Song to be released on World Environment Day to raise funds for environmental charities
By: Build a Better World
The date marks the 46th anniversary of World Environment Day and the team is hoping to do their bit to support the event by releasing the song. Its message centres around how we all need to build a better world for the future and must play a part in doing this. All those involved in creating the track have volunteered to donate their worldwide royalties from Better World for at least 12 months. The team has set itself the ambitious challenge of achieving one million streams and downloads by 5th June 2022 and hopes to achieve this by gaining public support to stream and share the song.
As well as raising funds for the three charities, the team behind the single hope it will be another way to shine the spotlight on the increasing urgency of the escalating climate crisis. Its lyrics reflect the importance of individuals choosing to play their part and change their behaviours to create a better world.
Writer Colin Gordon-Farleigh comments, "I would describe it as a protest song but with hope. The lyrics examine the human-inflicted devastation on our planet and while people will be familiar with many of the messages within it, the reality is that we aren't making the level of progress we need to. But the song also speaks of the hope that there still is for the future if we all work together to make it right."
Singer Cindy Hall adds, "I am thrilled to be part of this and hope this song encourages people to really reflect on the purpose of World Environment Day 2021 - music is another way to connect that message of urgency, the need to do something, with the other message that there is hope, we can make a change, and that starts with individual action. If we reach our target of a million downloads, we'll be absolutely delighted and we're really hoping people will support us in what we're trying to achieve."
